Counting Objects up to 20

In this video, we will learn how to count up to 20 objects arranged in different ways. When we’re counting large groups of objects, sometimes it helps to arrange the objects in different ways. We could place the apples into ten frames to help us count. We’ve placed 10 apples into our ten frame. We need another ten frame. Let’s carry on counting from 10. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. We filled two ten frames with apples. Two groups of 10 makes 20.

We could count this group of apples by arranging them in a straight line. This will make it easier to count them. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. We’ve made a group of 10. Let’s start a new line and keep on counting from number 10. 11, 12. Both groups have 12 apples. It doesn’t matter how we arrange the apples; the number is still the same. Let’s practice counting objects up to 20.

How many items are in the group?

Let’s arrange the items in a straight line to help us count them. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10, 11, 12. We arranged the items into two lines. A line of 10 and two more. 10 and two more is 12. There are 12 items in the group.

How many in the group?

We’re shown a group of insects. We need to count them to find out how many there are. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. We’ve made a group of 10, and one more makes 11. There are 11 insects in the group. We made a group of 10 and counted one more. One more than 10 is 11.

How many frogs are there?

We could place the frogs in straight lines to help us count them. Here is one line of frogs. Now, we’ve lined all of the frogs up. Let’s count how many frogs there are in each line. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, 10. Let’s carry on counting from number 10. 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20. We arranged the frogs into two lines of 10 to help us count them. There are 20 frogs.

What have we learned in this video? We’ve learned that we can arrange objects in different ways to count them. The amount stays the same.
